Country music has gone from a small sector of southern fans to a worldwide phenomenon. Artists once confined to the limited selection of genre-specific radio stations, or only known on the Nashville circuit, are now becoming mainstream successes. Coincidentally, music festivals have also experienced an uprising in popularity over the last few years. So it should come as no surprise that nearly all of the festivals featured on this list are either brand new or in their infancy. To put it simply? It’s a good time to be a country music fan right now.
